Positive Reviews

Location is perfect for exploration.

The famed New Orleans Bourbon Street is just a few blocks away from this accommodation. Not only is this hotel perfect for taking in this famous street and all of the French Quarter, but many of the city's most popular spots are all reachable on foot.

Staff are very friendly to all guests.

People manning the front desk at the Empress Hotel greet guests with a smile and are good for a pleasant conversation. They are also committed to making sure every visitor enjoys their time in New Orleans with lots of helpful tips.

Hotel provides a cheap way to see New Orleans.

Despite the fact this hotel doesn't have much to it; it is still a popular choice for backpackers and other tourists. The lack of amenities is made up for with a reasonable price that is very budget friendly and perfect for someone just needing a place to sleep in between adventures.

Negative Reviews

A very sparse accommodation.

Empress Hotel is the definition of a no-frills accommodation. There is very little furniture in the guestrooms and virtually no amenities on-site. People wanting to spend a lot of time at their accommodation should look elsewhere.

Showers don't always function well.

While guests at the Empress Hotel have access to private showers, most people shouldn't expect to get much from them. Low water pressure is a common nuisance, causing some guests to not feel thoroughly clean after use.

Property feels rundown.

Pictures online don't always show an accurate representation of this hotel. Fresh paint and other minor remodeling to the fixtures - including replacing carpeting - could help this hotel not feel so rundown.
